Default Battery Percentage Indicator on StatusBar

I didn't see a thread in here discussing this, but I'm using a battery percentage indicator that shows the percentage in the status bar. I just want to get an idea of what everybody else is using.

The one I downloaded from the appmarket is cool for being free, but if anybody has recommendations, I'd love to hear them. I really want the one that HTC makes, but it's only available for the N1 and Desire right now.

Post up the different ones being used.

So far, I like this one
Battery Status Pro (New) - Android app on AppBrain

This shows the percentage on the status bar no matter which of the 7 pages you're on.

While this is definitely a cool widget, I needed something that would show the status on every page.

I just added a shortcut to the about phone page in settings. Works fine for me, but systray is really good too.

But does it give you a battery percentage indicator at the top (on the status bar) on every page?

For all these battery apps and widgets, have any of you guys found that it affects battery life significantly?

From my experience, typically yes (and not for the better).

Ditto here too. I tried the "Get more HTC widgets" option in the Widgets menu and it seems like the server is down or something.

I'd like to know as well.

No clue...just experimenting right now, really, which is why I started this thread.

I liked Battery Status Pro, but for fear that it might drain the battery significantly, I changed to batteryminder, since it says that it has very little battery drain while in use.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been trying to figure out of it was just me for the longest time and nobody cared enough to respond! I thought it was because I was rooted, so I spent the better part of yesterday flashing back to stock only to have the stupid widgets STILL not download. If this had been posted yesterday, it would have saved me hours.

I have to agree with Kelmar - any status indicator, such as for battery, is only likely to drain the battery further, thus working against your goal. Disable things which are sucking up the battery and you won't need to care that much about this anymore. Besides you can see it from the settings menu and from the desk clock when plugged in.

Case in point, I've had my EVO sitting idle now for about an hour and it hasn't changed from 24% (I'm trying to get it down to like 1% and then will charge it back up fully). Read the battery life threads, there's a lot to be learned from those. I've had GREAT luck!

Believe me, I've read all those threads, but this is more of just a personal preference. I like seeing the actual percentage I have left all the time vs. having to click somewhere to see it. My phone lasted 16 hours straight with pretty heavy texting, some internet use, a few downloads from the app market, and a few phone calls. I had 19% left when I got home, which probably would've lasted me the night on idle.

I still haven't even looked into using ATK, which I may do as well. Regardless of the slight battery drain the app I currently have would cause, it's still somewhat worth it to me. And from what I could tell so far, the one I currently have doesn't suck that much life out of the battery at all.

This is what I use as well. Easy to read battery percentage and gives helpful information when pulling down the top bar.

Sure, it can be done, but it requires making changes to framework files. That can only be done if you root the phone and flash a custom ROM. That might be overkill just for battery percentage in the right corner instead of the left corner. It can definitely be done, though.

I'd imagine that, just like Windows Mobile phones before, once a person roots the phone, there's probably a way to edit the registry so that it moves that over to the right corner (although, I really don't know because I haven't rooted yet), instead of having to flash an entire ROM. Nontheless, I wouldn't be surprised if that info is already somewhere on XDA.

Android show various things in the notification bar. Stuff on the left are apps you have currently running, and will (normally) show up in the notification panel under "ongoing". You can't move them to the right side. The icons on the right are set, system icons. You can hack certain things with root, though, to modify how the system ones act. For example, you can modify the battery icon set to display the battery percentage. Doing so requires root, as it is modifying framework files. It has nothing to do with market apps. It's actually modifying the system.

I'm confused, isn't that what I said in the first part of my paragraph by saying "...once a person roots..."?

And "editing the registry" is a Windows mobile term that would be the same as "modifying the system" as you say. Sorry, I haven't rooted since moving over to Android when I got my EVO at launch, but I believe what you are saying is exactly the point that I was making.

Same one I use and like it a lot.

FYI, my thread was bumped specifically to ask if the percentage indicator in the notification bar can be moved to the right side.

Lol, yes, we're basically talking about the same thing. I was just making a distinction between the icons on the left and those on the right. You are correct. Once you root, you can have the battery percentage on the right, in place of the normal battery icons.

Okay good. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't completely confused, since I've only been an Android user for 8 months.

I guess there are really 2 things I miss from Windows Mobile 1) better video calling and 2) administrator access to phone data w/o having to "root"

Post up the different ones being used.

go over to forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=921151&page=3 and look at post 24 with the zip file attached.

Thanks for posting this, but akazabam was the one that bumped my thread. I posted this thread WAY back when I got my EVO last year and already found an app to work for my needs.

Which thing? Replacing your battery icon in the status bar with one that has the percentage? That requires root and a deodexed ROM. You have to flash one meant for the Evo and whatever ROM you have (unless it's for metamorph; then it shouldn't matter).

Cyanogen also has the pct in the battery icon, optionally. ... As an exercise, I made a battery widget that tries to estimate time remaining. Which has become a popular feature.

Default Battery percentage meter without the battery icon?

On alot of these apps and widgets I notice it is tough to find one that has a percentage reading for example: 79% without it being inside another battery icon. I do not want 2 different battery icons on my status bar! I understand replacing the OEM battery icon or removing it is usually not possible ( Motorola Atrix). I would like to keep the regular battery icon but with the ability to put on NUMBER percentage battery reading without another battery icon on the status bar! If this has been discussed in another forum here please sticky it to me please! Or just let me know what the app is! Thank you. Sadly Iphone 4 got this right and they only display the number percentage (99%) without the battery icon.

Chill out. I use Battery Indicator Pro and your eyes won't even shift to the battery status on the right side of the status bar. My eyes automatically shift to my battery indicator on the left of the status bar with the percentage. Android was created because everyone likes something different on their phone. With Android you can change almost anything and you won't find any phone utilizing Android with the same screen setup unlike iPhones.

As far as I know, you are going to need to go with a custom rom to get what you want. That said, I think more of the custom roms these days allow for this option than not.

i am using the MikRom:
[ROM] - [MikRoms] - [12/17/2011] - MikG v3.0 - Re-Engineered GB Sense 2.1 + 3.0 - xda-developers

it has the battery life LINE.. at the very top.. very thin line across the top edge.. above the notification bar. the length of the line and color tells you quickly what you have in batter life. I love it!!! if it is half way across the top.. then you have 50% battery.

at first, i did not know what that was.. and thought it was just a bug.. bad position of the screen... and it changed size and color throughout the day? what is that thing... LOL

And "editing the registry" is a Windows mobile term that would be the same as "modifying the system" as you say. Sorry, I haven't rooted since moving over to Android when I got my EVO at launch, but I believe what you are saying is exactly the point that I was making.
I used ninjamorph to change out my system icons. Changing a battery icon takes a little work from the way I did it. But it can be done infact each and everything can be changed on these phones.

You are correct, any .PNG found in the Rom can be swapped out. As long as it is the same size and name you're good to go.
